The Who (1964-1982) is an English rock band famous for songs like Pinball Wizard , My Generation and Behind Blue Eyes ; however less known songs like I Don't Even Know Myself really speak to what the band was about. They were able to capture the change in culture between the 50's morals to 60's lack thereof; a time that left a whole generation unsure about where they fit in to the grander scheme of things. Their sound was also highly transitional. The band combined Rhythm and Blues with Rock,...

Elvis Presley (1935-1977) was an American musician whose heyday was in the 1950s and 1960s.  The singer-guitarist's passionately performed tunes and outrageous dancing made him a hit with the youth as well as the object of parental disapproval.  While the moral panic eventually faded, Elvis's legacy did not, and he is still celebrated today as "The King" of rock and roll. This sampler includes the following (all songs performed by Elvis and credited to their composers): Blue Suede...
